Inquiring minds

The Raw Deal was the ideal setting for a gathering of area residents, educators and elected officials to find out about the latest research on the quality of the water, the annual blue-green algae blooms, and other issues affecting the Red Cedar River Watershed. Detailed poster presentations were given by the 11 university undergraduates from around the U.S. who spent the summer doing research under the guidance of UW-Stout professors. It was the third in a series of annual forums held as part of a three-year, $282,000 grant project funded by the National Science Foundation. Upcoming editions of the News will feature essays written by each student about their findings.
